Howdy-howdy <<First Name>>!

Well-- it wasn't the plan but this month is almost half way over already and I guess my newsletter this month is officially my birthday newsletter.  Yes-- it is the 16th :)

Just got back from a fantastic trip to L.A. a few weeks ago.  You may recall me mentioning that the last film I wrote the music for was an 'Official Selection' at the Los Angeles Film Festival.  A great honor!

And as promised in my May Newsletter's a sneak peek at the new music I composed.  It features cellist Sophie Webber who co-wrote and co-arranged the cello parts with me.

I look forward to hearing from you soon--  and please feel free to share this newsletter.

And for my birthday?... well, if you don't own my album why don't you download it or send it as a gift to someone else! :)  FYI, a digital download of my entire album is now just $7.  Or you can get the 6-panel physical version with a free immediate download included.

How are you?!?  Lets talk soon!
